I had a once in my lifetime opportunity to fly in an MV-22 at the Singapore Airshow on Wednesday, Feb. 12. Bell Boeing obviously had the Osprey at this show to further interest among foreign governments. One of the end slides in the briefing concluded with ‘Ready for Export!’
Only a few of the cranial helmets we were required to wear had the right input cable to be hooked into the intercom, and I was fortunate enough to get one of them. So I could hear the pilot talking to a foreign pilot, presumably from an interested military service, sitting in the jump seat.
